Homebuilders opening more new communities across Valley

Even amid the spread of Covid-19, homebuilders are moving ahead with more new communities throughout the Valley.

During the past 30 days, sales contracts shot up 28% at a time when demand typically falls during the hot summer months, said Jim Belfiore, founder of Belfiore Real Estate Consulting.

"During the last five years, demand during the same period has fallen by an average of 2%," he said.

For both new and existing homes, supply is low and expected to drop further during the next 30 days, Belfiore said. That means home prices will continue to escalate.

"New speculative supply in East Valley communities surveyed in the first seven days of the month is almost nonexistent, with builders now focusing on growing backlogs," Belfiore said. "Ready-to-deliver supply fell to a 78-month low in May, and it is set to go lower. Resale supply has reached unhealthy lows."

Here's a quick look at some new communities coming online:
